The 2007-2008 Big East schedule was announced (well, at least the home-away opponents) today. MU will play an 18-game conference schedule highlighted by home and home games against the following teams:
- Seton Hall Pirates
- Notre Dame Fightin' Irish
- Louisville Cardinals
Su-weeet.......MU at MSG against the Johnnies, finally. And wow, its good to see MU draw PC, Georgetown, Pitt and to a lesser degree DePaul at the Bradley Center this year.
Regarding the home/home games, that's a decent draw for MU. On the surface it is slightly more manageable than last year's mirror games, though SHU should make a big leap forward this coming season. The match-ups make sense: Louisville has emerged as arguably MU's fiercest rival, ND is a traditional rival, and playing SHU provides the program with greater visibility in the NYC/NJ area (hello recruits!).
